Online resource allows growers to tailor nitrogen management plans

08/27/2013 @ 9:25am

The Trials & Agronomy section of the newly redesigned SmartNitrogen.com allows growers to search hundreds of crop years of data, and sort by crop and location. This section is continually updated as more information is added from various regions. 
In addition, growers can ask specific questions of one of the Ph.D. agronomists of Agrium Advanced Technologies (AAT), makers of ESN.
Growers can learn more about how ESN, a controlled-release nitrogen fertilizer, works by clicking on the How ESN Works tab. A video shows how ESN’s polymer coating protects nitrogen from loss mechanisms and releases nitrogen based on temperature and soil moisture.
The Use and Handling tab provides growers with more information on ESN and the use recommendations for a variety of crops.
Finding the right use recommendations helps ensure growers maximize the yield gains ESN can provide. And ESN not only provides yield benefits, but environmental benefits as well. The site allows growers to learn more by clicking on Government Incentives under the How ESN Works tab.
“ESN provides value to growers through increased yields, improved convenience and flexibility, and environmental benefits,” says Bryon Strait, ESN marketing manager. “By utilizing the new SmartNitrogen.com site, growers can learn more about all these advantages and more.”
